Overview

"Superb...a series of masterly drawn glimpses into the storymaking art of one of Africa's great modern literary geniuses." -Alan Cheuse, NPR

A selection of short stories written to date by Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer, Life Times reveals her acute understanding of human nature and paints a fascinatingly original portrait of South Africa. Whether focusing on politics, sexuality, race, love, or loss, Gordimer maps out the terrain of human relationships with razor-sharp psychological insight and a stunning lack of sentimentality. Complex and multifaceted, her stories challenge us, time and again, to examine the conflict between our actions and our unspoken desires. This powerful collection, which includes two new stories, is a testament to Gordimer's literary genius and the ongoing power and relevance of her vision.

    Blueshine' Chapter 7

    Blackpaw left to go search for hawks in Loveclan territory jusin case and Bluepaw went back to camp. Suddenly Cloudpelt pounced on her glaring at her angrily. "How much do you know?" He seethed. "I...what?" She stammered. "I overheard you and Blackpaw talking. Are you really gonna tell? Because if you do, Blackpaw and Duskfur will be next." He threatened. Bluepaw gasped. "No...please no..!" She begged. "Now...i am a cat of my word. I wont harm anyone else if you keep this a secret." Bluepaw twitched nervously. "Please dont..." she muttered. "And i wont. Farewell Bluepaw. We will encounter on this topic again." He disappeared. Bluepaw leapt to her feet and glanced wildly around. Cloudpelt had disappeared as quickly as he appeared. Bluepaw nervously walked back to camp. Nightsong, a dark grey tom glowered at her. "Traitor!" He hissed. "You got alot of nerve! Showing your traitor face back here!" Rosepetal, a pinkish she cat seethed. "I know. Now if youll excuse me." Bluepaw said simply and walked away. Naturedust, another she cat glared. Her mate, Bigseed, licked her and shot Bluepaw a dirty look. Bluepaw felt like a stranger in her own home. She glared at Cloudpelt who was smirking at her. She stormed into her sleeping area and thought to herself What if this was a mistake? Or what if i actually belong in Loveclan? Then Blackpaw rushed over to her. "No hawks. I even checked in other clans and our camp. They had either burned or flew west." He reported. Everything came crashing down on her. All she needed was proof that he killed her mentor, but how? And even if she did procw it...how would she protect Blackpaw and Duskfur from Cloudpelts wrath?
